What's up everybody! Just a quick message. We will be relaunching AllHipHop.com with the goal of keeping the community front and center. I have worked with Jamal and select moderators, to make sure The Illl Community's needs are being addressed as we evolve. We are encouraging you to use the new platform.

We will NOT be closing the current community, but we will be porting user data over to the new system over time, so please get used to using the new community!

We will be working on it every single day until it's exactly what you want!

Please feel free to join now, test, as we are in beta:

    B/c I was never a fan of MySpace, how folks sat there viewing other folks profiles, drop a comment, and waited for a response. Plus that glittery letter s*** was gettin on my nerves.

    I wanted an interactive site with daily interaction.

    Couldn't log on to SOHH for some reason.

    Google search hip hop sites and just happened to click the AHH link.

    I was an avid AHH reader. Use to read about upcoming artist and such then started accidentally lurking the PPM. Never really knew or cared about the other subsections until the exposures.

    I joined in 02 cause I was working a tech support center and was hella bored. Stumbled across the IC off a link on an RnB site and it was alot different than it is now...way more females.

    Honestly I think IG, Twitter, and Snapchat have killed the message board game for alot of females.
    Damn @Kat we been on this bitch for a MINUTE! Lol

    I joined in late '02 as well... don't remember how I stumbled across this shit though.

    illseed rumors...was looking for ppl to discuss music production techniques, saw someone get exposed/roasted and it was on....
    As I look back over a misspent life, I find myself more and more convinced that I had more fun posting on the IC than in any other enterprise. It is really the life of kings.
